What is case where a person has to wear glasses for the rest of their life? (Please Help)

Okay so this question kind of has something to do with me. Apparently I'm near sighted & I have to get either glasses or contacts soon. I just want to know why some people have to wear glasses the rest of their life. The doctor I went to said that glasses or contacts won't help improve my vision but just make me able to see better. I just want to know if my vision could possibly get better with glasses or contacts. My eye problem is kind of genetic because it runs in the family with vision problems. So is it possible my eyes will get stronger or better?? & Why do some people have to wear glasses for the rest of their lives??

Jordan, unfortunately, I am also near-sighted. I do wear glasses and contacts. I feel for you. You must wear glasses the rest of your life because your vision isn't going to improve, alas. There's no reason that it would improve. The only option to glasses would be laser surgery, which is fairly expensive, but not outrageous. You would have to be a candidates, also. Some aren't able to have the surgery, due to existing factors. Sorry there's no hope, Jordan, except for the surgery. Sucks, doesn't it? : [

Glasses for the rest of my life you say?? Ahhh I can't picture that on me!!! :( I never thought this kind of thing would happen to me. Well this kind of sucks. :( But I guess I'll have to live with it. Anyways how're you this afternoon?? :) Also Thanks for the Advice. ^_^

Yes, it does suck. You are welcome. Maybe one day you'll decide you want contacts, but you will still have to have glasses, as well. Maybe one day you'll decide laser eye surgery is for you. Contacts really are great. If you don't like your eye colour, well, can always change that. :) I had to get glasses when I was in grade four. I'm pretty blind, presently. : ( Don't let needing glasses get you down too much, Jordan. Glasses are considered way cooler now than they used to be. :)
After noon is alright, thanks. How is your day?

The only way to make your eyesight better is to get laser eye surgery. C:

Glasses won't improve your eyesight. But near-sighted people don't have to wear glasses all the time. You may only need it for driving (they have prescription sunglasses) and activities like watching tv or going to the movies.

Once you have lost your vision you cannot gain it back, besides some improvements from laser surgery. Glasses are an aid not a cure. They're basically a magnifying glass. I'm almost legally blind without my glasses or contacts. I cannot see anything unless it's inches away from me. Eyes change as you grow, so most near sighted people get worse with age and then balance off later. So once you have to wear glasses you'll need aid the rest of your life.

I have to wear glasses every day of my life. it really isn't as bad as you think. I tend to forget they are on (until my 9 month old pulls them off or gets grubby hand marks all over them lol) I have terrible eye sight. my head is about 2 feet away from the computer screen right now and If I were to take my glasses off I cant read a single word.
p.s some guys look cute with glasses and a lot of chick dig that. don't write it off just yet.

Your eyesight can not get better from contacts or glasses, but you can get surgery to improve them.

No. Not really. I was just told that I will never be able to see like normal people ever again, which is really sad. (if you look at my recent questions you'll see my horrible sight problems, hopefully no ones eyes ever get as bad as mine) But the only thing that actually improves/fixes your vision is LASIK eye surgery.
